Some of Our Responsibilities To One Another Based on our relationship to Christ, we must fulfill our responsibilities to one another
2 Introduction As Christians, we are uniquely related to Christ by obedient faith All the Lord’s commands stem from this primary relationship with Him He has commanded us not only in salvation, worship and work with a local church but also to serve one another To be faithful to the Lord we must fulfill all obligations to Him including duties to one another
3 Our Relationship To Christ Gal 3:26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. Gal 3:27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 1Co 12:13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.
4 Our Relationship To Christ Determines Our Relationship To One Another Rom 12:3 For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith. Rom 12:4 For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function,
5 Our Relationship To Christ Determines Our Relationship To One Another Rom 12:5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

8 The Lord Commands Us To Love One Another 1Co 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 1Co 13:5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 1Co 13:6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 1Co 13:7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
9 The Lord Commands Us To Forgive One Another Eph 4:31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Eph 4:32 Be kind to one another, tender- hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.
